If so, we’d love to hear from you to build a database of names associated with the Standard and Triumph company. Read More HERE.

To add a name, click on the ‘Submit a Name’ link below.
Please add the surname first.
Use the format: SmithJohn in the name field, then add a description; here you can include a role, location, service dates etc plus any other information you think may be of interest, finishing with your name (you may be submitting on behalf of a family member). Don’t worry how much – or little – you write in the description box – everything helps!
PLEASE NOTE: By using the ‘submit name’ element on the site we DO NOT get any record of you or your email and sometimes we’d love to get in touch with you, but we can’t! Please either drop your email details on the entry (don’t worry we won’t publish that) or a separate email to say ‘hello’.
Thank you.
